A New World, if We can Take It

A New World, if We can Take It
It is now clear that a mistaken policy of 'shoot 'em down'
by the United States Government, pursued with vigor at least
through the 1950s by the US Air Force, ruined any chance of
meaningful contact with our visitors during that period, and
up to the present.
Last year, the British Ministry of Defence released
documentation indicating that a pair of American pilots, one
of them Milton Torres, had been ordered to fire upon a UFO
over the United Kingdom on May 20, 1957. Dr. Torres, still
very much alive, then came forward and told the story that
he had been ordered to keep secret by the Air Force.
The UFO, he said, was the size of an aircraft carrier. When
he and the other pilot involved armed their rockets, it
simply disappeared from their radars and they did not fire.
This was not the only time that the Air Force engaged UFOs.
The reason that this must be true is that the pilots were
scrambled without warning, and immediately ordered to fire.
There was no need to obtain prior permission from the
Ministry of Defence. The orders were already in place and
the policy behind them decided. Otherwise, there could have
been no scramble order over a foreign country, let alone an
order to fire armed missiles over the territory of an allied
country without prior permission. They had permission. This
is why they were able to act immediately.
It still goes on. Despite Air Force denials, FAA radar
records showed conclusively that jets rose to meet the
objects that appeared over Stephenville, Texas in 2008, so
it can be assumed that, at the very least, the Air Force
continues to defend its "airspace" with all the intelligence
and usefulness of a yapping terrier.
This policy caused contact to fail. As such, it is not
simply the greatest mistake in recorded history but the
greatest mistake in the biological history of the species.
Certainly, the United States wishes to continue to conceal
this secret at almost any cost.
This is because the blocking of contact has had such dire
effects. It has blocked our evolutionary path and left us
trapped on a planet that is becoming unable to support us
and could, more or less at any time, start malfunctioning in
ways that could induce a massive dieback of our species.
The mistake was not made only because people like Harry S.
Truman and Curtis LeMay were foolish, belligerent and
ill-prepared. They had just come out of the most horrific
war in history, only to discover that, in the Soviet Union,
they had a new enemy every bit as insane as the old one. And
now, suddenly, a bizarre and entirely unpredictable presence
appears. Pro-Soviet? Communists from another world, perhaps?
Or, simply, a fearful new unknown?
Who knows what went through their minds? But the outcome in
policy is clear: they decided to protect their airspace.
And now we have to live with the consequences. But do we,
really? Might not there be another chance?
Of course there is another chance. But it does not involve
our existing authorities and institutions. In fact, it has
nothing to do with institutional authority except insofar as
it must stand aside in order for contact to proceed.
As matters now stand, if there was an admission at the
highest levels of the US government similar to that already
made by numerous other governments, there will follow an
effort to manage information flow by directing the media to
NASA, the US Air Force and such quasi-governmental groups as
the MUFON leadership.
However, these groups probably have little to nothing of any
value to offer. From all appearances, they think of the
situation as involving intelligent entities from another
planet or planets who function according to policy and, in
some way, have institutions like ours that formulate and
direct their policies.
In reality, the way the visitors function and what happens
to people in their proximity suggests that they perceive the
world very, very differently from the way we do. For example,
when you are face to face with the small gray beings that
form such a large part of the presence we see, and figure so
extensively in its folklore, there is no sense that you are
with people. Rather, it's like being with animals who are
much more intelligent than you are. This is because there is
absolutely no cultural familiarity at all. None.
How can officials engage with somebody
whose meaning lies beyond a gap far more vast than that
between us and, say, dolphins? We haven't the slightest idea
what cetaceans may be saying to each other, or even what
language means to them, if anything. And our visitors--even
those who appear to engage with us verbally--are far, far
more different from us than any earthly species.
No, official control of contact is going to fail just as
certainly as the official policy of shoot first has failed.
For us to have useful contact, it is going to be necessary
to engage directly and personally, and the
visitors--thankfully--will regard the end of the final
obstacle, which is official denial and belligerent display,
as a signal to open themselves to more personal interaction
If, in addition to the end of official denial and the
constant scrambling of armed aircraft, there comes a
properly constituted and new effort to understand by
scientists who work outside of the U.S. government--for
example, in the academic community--then there will also be
a response. The more accurate the conclusions that enter
scientific culture, the richer and more complex the
visitors' reaction to them will become. Useful understanding
will lead to the appearance of more information.
The release of the much vaunted "secret knowledge"
supposedly in possession of the US government probably
doesn't much matter. It has most likely been obtained, for
the most part, by people who lacked any real ability to
interact with our visitors, and not only has little value,
it might even be tainted by inaccuracies, incorrect
conclusions and falsehoods that are designed to make us feel
a need to hide behind the authority of the very institutions
that would be releasing the supposed 'bombshells,' in an
effort to terrify us into preserving them.
One of the visitors once said that what was on offer for
mankind was 'a new world, if you can take it,' meaning both
that we must be able to wrest it from their hands, and to
bear it when we do.
Certainly, the government and its associated entities have a
role to play. It remains up to them to find the courage to
disclose the truth, which is that they know that an unknown
intelligence is present here. Beyond that, the primary
directions contact will take are two. First, and most
important, it will be between individuals and the visitors,
without any institutional barrier such as some NASA or Air
Force officials directing our actions or laws restricting or
channeling contact. Second, it will involve scientists
working publicly on data that can be readily obtained in
dozens of different ways, to make sense of contact in terms
that are meaningful to us.
Thus the evolutionary process that was interrupted in the
1940s can resume. The beginning of it is now quite clear:
government admits the validity of the phenomenon, then steps
aside and lets the people work to forge it into a human reality.
If and when this happens, history will look upon it for what
it will prove to be: the end of the first stage of human
evolution and the beginning of the second. It is that large
Of course, if they do nothing, then it will proceed anyway,
but only when the social order has so broken down that
government can no longer offer resistance to the visitors,
and the people are sufficiently desperate to turn to them
anyway. Under conditions of such chaos and suffering,
though, it will be far less effective, and what might take
fifty or a hundred years during a period of organized social
patterns such as we enjoy now, will take thousands of years,
and may even require a whole new cycle of collapse to
So, a great deal rides on whether or not a single man has
the courage to tell the truth. "Ladies and gentlemen, we
have known for some time that a nonhuman intelligence
appears to be present here. Beyond that, we have learned
little of any value. Our own forces will now stand down, in
the hope and expectation that the people and public sector
science can learn more, and gain for mankind the value that
appears to be available to us."
That would be the first step in what would become, truly, a
journey to a new world.
